Some facts.

-first episode in Japan was in 1997
-Gen II was going to be called Pocket Monsters 2
-GF was going to release it late fall of '97
-pushed back for '99 because Nintendo, and GF wanted it to be for the Gameboy Color!

Yup. It was a gen 2 spoiler.

Cept people weren't thinking in terms of gens at that point, so the true meaning went unnoticed.

There was going to be some 190 Pokemon in the first game but due to limited space they cut it down to the 151. Ho-oh was in the 49 that got cut. But they paid homage to him in the first episode.

Some of the missingos represented the others.
